About

John Meenan is a consultant gastroenterologist who helps patients with a broad range of gastrointestinal problems, including Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), bloating, gas, troublesome bowels, tummy pain, passing blood, and concerns about bowel cancer risk and oesophageal acid-reflux. He prioritizes follow-up through email to save patients unnecessary trips and avoids invasive tests when good alternatives are available. For self-paying patients or those with limited insurance cover, he highlights tests that can be done through a family doctor. He is recommended by BUPA's "Open referral" service, where 90% of patients rate both the "Consultant" and "Quality of Care" as Very good/Excellent. His endoscopy results are independently audited every six months and consistently exceed national standards.John has a particular interest in endoscopy, colonoscopy, and the advanced technique of endoscopic ultrasound (EUS), which allows detailed views of all the organs around the stomach, including the pancreas, during an endoscopy. He has been a Consultant Gastroenterologist and Chief of the Department at a prestigious London hospital. He has also been the chairman of the UK/Ireland EUS Users' Group and a member of the International Committee of the American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ASGE).John qualified cum laude from the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland in 1986 and trained in Gastroenterology at St. James's, Dublin, the Academic Medical Centre, Amsterdam, and Guy's and St. Thomas', London. He has published research papers and textbooks on topics including the immunology of IBD, large bowel folate metabolism, and endoscopic ultrasound. He has maintained and built on his skills through intermittent attachments at international centres in Japan, France, and Germany, and by attending and presenting at international conferences and medical summits. He was awarded the prestigious "Teachers" award by the American Endoscopy Society (ASGE) in 2007 and 2013. His expertise includes general gastroenterology, endoscopy, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), troublesome acid reflux, heartburn/dyspepsia (indigestion), cancer screening, and advanced endoscopic procedures (EUS).
